Anyone in UAE is wanting to sell ant queens?

Since there are no Ant keepers in UAE (I may be the first one) I want to buy a queen ant or a colony.
Pls if anyone is an ant keeper in Sharjah or Dubai pls contact me on Private messages. I am interested on Carpenter ant,Pharaoh ant and other species.

Trading, buying or selling pharaoh ants would not be a wise desision as they are highly invasive. Even if they are native to your area, I would suggest leaving pharaoh ants alone.
My current colonies:
-Miniature Military(formica neogagates)
-Power of War(camponotus novaeborecensis)
-Black Hearts(crematogaster cerasi)
[Have a look at antmaps.org]

I’m also looking for a GAN farmer in Dubai but can’t seem to find one
I suggest becoming a GAN farmer yourself instead of looking for someone as that will take time

Unfortunately, there are no ant keepers in the UAE at the moment, so it is not possible to purchase a queen ant or a colony from a local source. You may be able to find someone willing to ship a queen ant or colony from abroad, but this is not recommended as it is difficult to ensure that the ants will survive the journey and be healthy. If you are looking to start an ant-keeping hobby, we recommend you buy the necessary equipment (like an ant farm, and food, and ant-keeping tools) and begin with an ant colony of your own. This way, you can be sure the ants will be healthy and that the colony will thrive. There are plenty of online resources that can help you get started, including ant-keeping forums, instructional videos, and even an ant-keeping subreddit Good luck!
